MADISON, Wis. (8/21/13)--The Credit Union National Association is asking credit unions nationwide to help it choose a theme for National Credit Union Youth Week 2014.
The week, April 20-26, is CUNA's official designation of an annual, national celebration for credit unions that support youth financial literacy all year long. It's an opportunity to formally acknowledge young members and encourage them to start and maintain a saving habit.
Credit unions with ideas for the theme should reply by Aug. 28. The top themes will be voted on in early September. To send a youth week theme, e-mail YWCoordinator@cuna.coop.
Themes from past years include:
April is National Financial Literacy Month, and CUNA's National Youth Saving Challenge will again run the entire month. Credit unions can participate in the challenge either during youth week or during the entire month.
